now that I've moved to DP,I've lost the use of Voce Spin (anybody interested, PM me)

I have the mda Leslie... it's OK, but it's a bit too perfect/sterile... another forum suggested I add distortion and maybe a mic sim.... I don't want layers of FX

any suggestions?

I have a Leslie, but for concept/development recordings it's too much bleed in a small studio playing live

The B4, although supposed to be like the B3 could probably get close to a leslie.

I used it years ago on a few songs and seem to recall it had some similar sounds.

E, is it just a Leslie plug-in or is it also a Hammond VI? I have an M3 and can record direct with it, I just need a convincing plug to get the feel across without micing up the Leslie just for a quick mix

someone suggested Nebula 3, but the ir website appears to be down

ya' know what I did last week?

no, of course not ...... how could you?

I'm doing a recording that I want to sound like the bed tracks of 'Us and Them' with that droning B3 running thru it.
I have no Leslie so what I did was record the organ straight and then reamped it thru my POD. The POD has a rotary effect with a tap so I sat there and where I'd want the leslie to spin up, I'd start tapping faster until it was fast and then slow down the taps to slow it back down. Speeding up and slowing down the taps progressively made it really sound like a Leslie changing speeds in that gradual fashion they have.

It worked amazingly well ..... I'm not sure, if you didn't know already, that you'd realize it wasn't a real Leslie.
At least my musical buddy over here didn't. He asked where did I get the leslie.
I'll try to stick up a file of it tomorrow for ya'.

It's modeled after a B3, but I'm sure you could make it sound close enough to a leslie - it's very tweakable as I recall.

I'm no keyboard connoisseur though.

Lt
-alas I sold my Pod years ago... though I could reamp... through the Leslie Laughing

E- If the B4 is like most VI's, I don't believe you can separate the Leslie effect... and I'm not sure how to send an analog recorded track, through a VI... there's something to explore! Very Happy

E
- I'm guessing it's not possible to separate the Lesie and use the input from an audio track... at least the couple of VI's I have don't work that way..

I can't believe someone hasn't developed a Leslie modeler... we got amp modelers, mic modelers, speaker modelers....

Laughing Now I know what you did last week. But I still don't know your middle name.

Cool fun with the Pod. Cool

Pity Stan, I've been toying with SpinnerLE & NuBiLE (B3 emulator) and the results are spectacular!

yes, indeed, but the inconvenience isn't enough to even make me consider going back to a PC

...once you go Mac, you'll never go back

Does it need to be virtual? Granted, I understand the advantages, but the Hughes & Kettner Rotosphere is an incredible facsimile of a Leslie, in a (largish) pedal. It's tube-driven, and has a fantastic gain stage, as well as a very realistic brake. I got mine on Craigslist for $250. By far the most I've ever paid for a pedal, but once you've tried the rest, you might as well get the best. Of course you'd have to reamp through it and print it, but it sounds killer.

virtual is just convenient- I can always reamp through the Leslie... or just retrack the keyboard thru the Lelsie

I sold a H&K Roto for a friend on eBay a while back- It was a nice pedal, but my Lelslie been reworked so I can also play guitar thru it

But wasn't bleed an issue? Doesn't the Leslie have to be mic'd? I guess you could do it after the initial tracks are captured.

if I'm re-amping bleed wouldn't be a concern (as I'd not be doing it 'live')

and yes the Leslie needs to be mic'd... but if If re-amping through a pedal into a mic, I'd still need mic ... unless I DI'd... but not much more effort to position the mics

OTOH, may just pick up a pedal and put it in the original signal chain....

I used to have the NI B4 on another computer, and as I recall, the B4 EFX could be loaded as just effects, where the leslie and overdrive could be used without the organ. I'm not sure which version it was.
